Second Meeting with the DOJ on Missing, Murdered Lakota

Here are photos from the October 10, 2017 meeting with the Department of Justice team of investigators.  The team is looking at Lakota people’s abuse at the hands of law enforcement and overall deaths in the community as a consequence of the policies and proceedures of United States governments, State and local governments.

The DOJ has indicated it seeks to interview and explore discriminatory practices in the Oglala Sioux Tribe police, courts, and Tribal Council that are affecting traditional and grassroots Lakota people on Pine Ridge Reservation. Discriminatory violence on the reserveration sets the stage for bias Lakota face in border towns and cities and in State justice systems.
